Favstar gets even better if you sign in.
Holier-than-thou media demands perfection, expects mayor not to be serial liar/cocaine user/drunk driver/friend of violent criminals.
Here’s my attempt to come to grips with what went on this aft. In all honesty, I don’t think it does it justice. http://fullcomment.nationalpost.com/2013/11/18/andrew-coyne-rob-ford-doesnt-need-to-hear-get-help-he-needs-to-hear-get-out/ …
I think when the mayor says he has “zero tolerance” for drugs he means he gets wrecked on the first hit.
Why the hell didn’t Harper bet Obama the Keystone pipeline on the game?
Jack Layton will be remembered for many things, but the gallantry of his last campaign will be his glory. Courage, grace & charm to the end.
I dream of a world where women can invite other women to fundraisers, without being scolded by other women for not doing it right.
THIS IS JUST UNREAL. Running over, more like. @chrisalecanada: video of #robford running into councillor: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QB1dJeMtb08&feature=youtu.be …
So to recap: Prime Minister's office, Ontario premier's office, mayor of Toronto, both major Quebec parties: all subject of police inquiries

In a culture of achievement, you'd just get up and announce the players. In a bureaucratic culture, it's about who's doing the announcing.
What an extraordinary statement by Tom Mulcair: generous, decent, empathetic, unreserved, not a hint of politics.
Very saddened to hear of Jim Flaherty's death. He was one of the last of the "happy warriors" in our politics. We need more like him.
My latest: Under a normal govt, the Fair Elections Act would be withdrawn or redrafted. But this is not a normal govt http://fullcomment.nationalpost.com/2014/03/28/andrew-coyne-fair-elections-act-proof-the-conservatives-are-no-normal-government/ …
You do understand that we are not really a democracy, right? That parliament is a sham? That MPs are just props? If not, turn on QP.
I cannot comment on a TV show I have not seen or does not exist.
So we have multiple witnesses who heard the mayor threaten to kill somebody on live TV.
So that was a great convention, if you like being cooped up & harassed & ordered about by security goons everywhere you go. Congrats Tories!
